PermaLinkJamFest: "Spooky"
08:56:53 PM

At last year's JamFest, I asked around to see if anyone knew the lyrics to Spooky. Nobody did. I was bummed, because it's a fun song to jam on. So, I've looked up the lyrics and I'll bringing printed copies with me. It's a built around an interesting variant of a three chord minor progression and a distinctive rhythm.


The guitar chords and voicings are a little unusual, but actually quite easy

  • Em7 - preferably the 7th fret bar form

  • A13 - preferably the 5th fret voicing shown at top here here
    (but I prefer to just mute the high E string rather than fretting it to a high A).

  • Bb diminished 7.- preferably the in the 7th fret position of the form shown at top here
    (though the easier form on the 5th fret -- or 8th, or 2nd, because diminished chords are cool that way! -- is just fine).


The melody is also simple and easy to improvise around, with lots of opportunities to bend notes.


So... anyone want to plan on going up with me to do the vocals on this or jam on the instrumentals? Let me know and perhaps we can talk about another song or two.

Rich,

I'm not able to make it to the 'Sphere this year but I did find a copy of Spooky in an old song book.

I'd be glad to scan the pages and email it to you... not sure about copyright legality ... but it's an old out of print book probably one of the first guitar music books I bought back when I was in 6th grade.

Rich, I'm not familiar with the song but it sounds cool. Know anywhere I can listen to a sample of it on YouTube or anything?

@chris here is a youtube of Dusty Springfield's renditio of it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvNf0zJz2iA&feature=related

I do love Dusty Springfield, but here's the Atlanta Rhythm Section version of Spooky:

And here's the original by the Classics IV:
